Developing standards for health and social care records

The report of the Joint Working Group looking at records standards has now been published.

Currently there is no overarching body responsible for health and social care records standards. The Joint Working Group was set up at the request of the Department of Health to examine the development of Electronic Health Records and recommend how professional requirements and leadership could best support the development of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in line with national policy.

The Joint Working Group was set up at the request of the Department of Health to examine the development of Electronic Health Records and recommend how professional requirements and leadership could best support the development of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in line with national policy.  The Group met on six occasions and was chaired by Dr Charles Gutteridge, the National Clinical Director for Informatics. Membership of the JWG included representatives from health (medicine, nursing and AHP) and social care.
